Jiaogulan is a plant that grows wild in China. The leaf is used to make medicine. Jiaogulan is sometimes referred to as “Southern Ginseng” because it grows in south central China and is used in similar ways as ginseng.
What is Jiaogulan used for?
Jiaogulan is used for high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and improving heart function. It is also used for strengthening the immune system, increasing stamina and endurance, increasing resistance to environmental stress (as an “adaptogen”), improving memory, and preventing hair loss.
Other uses include treatment of poor appetite, cough, chronic bronchitis, ongoing stomach pain (chronic gastritis), pain and swelling (inflammation), ulcers, constipation, stress, gallstones, obesity, cancer, diabetes, trouble sleeping (insomnia), backache, and pain.
Some people use jiaogulan as an anti-aging agent, antioxidant, and detoxifying agent.
USES & EFFECTIVENESS
Possibly Effective for...
- Reducing cholesterol levels. There is some evidence that taking jiaogulan can decrease total cholesterol and increase the “good” high-density lipoprotein (HDL)/total cholesterol ratio in people with high cholesterol levels.
Insufficient Evidence to Rate Effectiveness for...
- Liver disease (nonalcoholic fatty liver disease). Early research suggests that taking jiaogulan three times daily by mouth for 4 months does not improve markers of liver function, body mass index, cholesterol levels, kidney function, or blood sugar in people with a type of liver disease called nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
- Regulating blood pressure.
- Stomach disorders.
